    Steam-era Yarding Donkeys-Link currently not active-'Link-Belt' in the Big Woods-Active but a work in progress. Washington Iron Works Catalog We will cover all manner of forestry and logging machinery. Blocks and rigging, saws and axes, even horses and oxen? Combining the frequency and rate of lives lost, direct logging occupations are the most hazardous work in Oregon. This safety booklet tells the stories of 18 fatal incidents in yarding operations in Oregon over 6 years, , with accompanying safety recommendations.

    Even though the information is aimed at the use of skylines with a conventional yarder tower on steep slopes, the information is applicable to other methods. The Oregon OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Act) have produced a logging handbook which is readable and easy to use. It is intended to reinforce safe practices during cable yarding. systems, operating in small d.b.h, stands with For example, the cost of using the Bitterroot low volume removals makes harvesting marginal, yarder at a slope yarding distance of feet is $/ft 3 increasing to $/ft 3 at a distance.

    Delays and downtime are important segments of total yarding time for all systems and are unpredictable for the most part. Thus, future analysis of delays may lead to significant improvements in yarding production rates. The report includes a procedure for estimating direct yarding costs from time-study data gathered on a sampling basis.

Yarding Safety (Logging) Yarding is the logging operation that moves felled trees from the slash pile to the landing or storage area prior to transportation. Rigging crews hook cable systems (simple, high-lead, shotgun, skyline, etc.) to the felled trees.

skyline excursion during the lateral yarding of logs. ~ permit the safe yarding of maximum log lengths and swinging of the log turn during yarding. A well-designed yarding system may, in fact, utilize relatively narrow corridors. • Planners should also: ~ plan for sufficient deflection where full suspension yarding is desired.

Cable logging– A yarding system employing winches and cables from a fixed position (usually a yarder and tower of some sort). Cableway– The location or pathway of a cable suspended between elevated supports so as to constitute a track along which log carriages can be pulled.

Full Line Rigging Shop for Loggers - Since. We deal with full time professional loggers every day, because the timber industry is still huge here in the Pacific Northwest.

We keep all the common types and sizes of wire rope in stock all year long. This includes Standard 6x19 Choker Cable and even High Performance Swaged or Maximum Strength Impact Swaged.

This case study analyzed the performance of a start-up cable yarding crew in southern China through operational monitoring by consecutive time studies, long-term log book recordings and efficiency evaluation by stochastic frontier analysis (SFA). The crew, which used a KOLLER K H mobile tower yarder, was monitored for two years.

During this period, detailed data recordings of yarding. This effective ground-based logging system utilizes an off-road tracked log loader machine (called a “shovel”) to move logs, or whole trees, from the stump to the roadside landing.

The “shovel” log loader works in a harvest area to lift-and-swing logs/trees from side-to-side, in a progression that moves logs/trees from the stump to the. Our hydraulic yarding systems can be installed either log loaders or excavators without detracting from the original use of the machine as they have the ability to switch from loading / excavating to yarding in minutes.

Operators can easily set up for logging using gravity carriage (uphill settings), highlead (downhill or flat settings) logging. Logging (52) 13% Fallers (16) 31% Log Truck Drivers (13) 25% Yarding and Related Operations (18) 35% The large number of fatal traumatic injuries in logging make it one of the top three most hazardous industries in Oregon.

Transportation incidents are most frequent; but the rate of fatalities in logging is much higher. During Operations include: Grapple/Cable Skidders are machines used to tow the logs to the landing.

They are covered by the general requirements for logging machines. Examples of Cable Yarding Systems are provided. Although they are addressed by some state standards, they are.

During this period, detailed data recordings of yarding cycles of 12 yarding corridors as well as log book recordings of an additional scheduled system hours (SSH, including all delays.

Love Being a. The delay percentages can be used to adjust the delay-free cost estimates. For example, a logger is estimating yarding costs for a hardwood stand with an average arithmetic tree d.b.h.

of inches, an average slope distance of feet, and an average volume removal of 2, ft3. The delay-free yarding cost is: = - (8).

The total cost for the tree-length logging system won/m^3, of which the majority was incurred by the yarding cost at 46,won/m^3 (%), whereas the lowest cost was for felling at 2. categories of delays were used in the delay analysis as follows: (1) operational delay, (2) mechanical delay, and (3) nonproductive delay, which represents delays associated with the principal operating functions of the system.

In addition to the yarding delays and cycle elements, the following yarding variables were recorded and summarized. Skyline logging systems desperately need to improve the gathering function in second growth timber to reduce cost through better cycle times and optimum turn size.

Logging contractors who have stayed with these obsolete yarding systems are simply going out of business. Cable yarding systems are often used to reduce hazardous fuels in dense overstocked forest stands on steep terrain (>35%) in the western United States.

However, treatment costs tend to be high. The aim of this study was to broaden our knowledge by evaluating two different harvesting methods (whole-tree (WT) and tree-length (TL)) used for fuel.Yarding system.

Determine the yarding system to use, considering the available equipment, terrain, timber size, and yarding distances (see Chapter 6).

Size of timber and number of sorts. Tree-length logging requires much more room than log-length. Is there room to safely deck larger sorts of logs?In early logging the cross member used for roading logs - later, a reference to the act of yarding logs.
